In search of a first victory this season in the Bundesliga, Eintracht Frankfurt finally achieved its goals this Sunday. Winners of the last Europa League won on the lawn of Werder Bremen at the end of a match with a crazy scenario and impressive intensity (4-3).
Just over a fortnight from their trip to the Vélodrome in the Champions League, the Germans have regained their offensive strike force. With a brilliant Randal Kolo Muani as the spearhead. A very reliable point of support, the former Nantes player delivered a decisive pass to Mario Götze to unlock the match (2nd) and also scored his team’s second goal (32nd). Jesper Lindstrom, before the break (39th), and Djibril Sow, after the break (48th), worsened the score.
It was necessary that to snatch the victory. Because on the other side of the field, Frankfurt displayed worrying defensive shortcomings. Faced with a promoted player, Oliver Glasner’s players gave in twice before the 20th minute and, above all, almost cracked at the end of the match despite a two-goal lead. To make the most of these weaknesses, OM will have to show themselves capable of playing at the same level of intensity.
